I missed that. Seems the Cynic has just scratched out the 6th amendment I mean I know there is some dispute over the president's powers in this wiretap thing but the right to trial is set down in black and white yet he believes the government can overrule it. I guess he's been watching Pirates of the Caribbean these days and applying the attitude to the Bill of Rights. You know, they ain't exactly rules, more like guidelines.

Well, it turns out he was only thinking about civil trials. I doubt that he gives much of a rusty rat's a$$ about the 6th, or any of the Bill of Rights except maybe the right to own howitzers and RPG's.
